#FuckTrump #NotMyPresident

I don’t usually do politics on WITB. It’s not something I enjoy, and I generally will only talk politics with my closest of friends; and I mean the absolute closest, because we agree on just about all of it, and won’t get into hateful arguments over it.

Having said that, if you’re my friend on Facebook, you know I haven’t been quiet about what has happened. But now it’s time for an official post on the blog about it.

Let the record show that I do not support the man who is not being referred to as “President of the United States” (POTUS, for short). And here are the reasons.

  • Trump is a racist. He retaliated against the Muslim family of a Muslim soldier who fought and died for our country and was awarded a Gold Star. He accused an acclaimed Judge of being unfit to hear a case because he’s Mexican. When asked if a Muslim judge would be fit to try legislation, Trump responded that he might not be fair either, because he’s Muslim. The Trump Management Corp., a real estate company, was sued twice by The Justice Department for refusing to rent to black tenants. When Trump entered one of his casinos in the 1980’s, the black staff was ushered to the back so as to not be seen by Trump.
  • Trump is a misogynist. In 1991, he told Esquire Magazine that it doesn’t matter what printed media writes about you, as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass. In 1992, in an interview with New York Magazine, he said about women, “You have to treat ’em like shit.” In 1997, Howard Stern asked Trump if he could’ve nailed Princess Diana. He responded, “I think I could have.” In 2016, Trump blamed Hillary Clinton for her husband’s sexual proclivities, claiming she was an “enabler.” And the most famous by now: Trump explicitly claims that, when you’re a celebrity, you can just grab ’em by the pussy. Clearly, this asshole is okay with rape.
  • Trump is a rapist. Jill Harth says Trump assaulted her in the 1990s. One woman said he tried to put his hand up her skirt on a flight in the 1970s and another said he forcibly kissed her. A Florida woman says Trump groped her. A former People reporter recounted an alleged assault at his Mar-a-Lago debate, and says he told her, “You know we’re going to have an affair, don’t you?” Given his behavior and the misogynist comments he has made, there is no doubt in my mind that the man has literally forced himself upon these women.
  • Trump is anti-LGBTQ. He doesn’t believe that gay people should have the right to marriage, as evidenced by his commitment to appoint Supreme Court Judges to overcome the measure. Trump declined to support the Equality Act and he has voiced support for the “First Amendment Defense Act,” which supports discrimination against LGBTQs. He has made it clear that he will not enforce civil rights lawsuits that fight to make Transgendered Americans equal under the law. He said his first priority if elected President of the United States would be to ‘preserve and protect our religious liberty’ – i.e., make sure that religious nutjobs aren’t prosecuted for hate crimes and discrimination against LGBTQ if they cite “religious beliefs” as their defense.

Trump filed bankruptcy, what, a total of six times? He didn’t pay taxes as an American citizen. He’s a Republican (which I’m not anyhow). But those are not the reasons I did not vote for him. I would’ve voted Democrat regardless of whom was running on the Republican ticket. However, let’s be clear about this: even if I were a Republican, I would not have voted for this man – because clearly he is not a decent human being.

I’m not embarrassed. I’m ashamed. I’m not upset. I’m appalled. I’m not scared, because I’m a gun-owner and have no qualms protecting myself – but I’m scared that the American people have lost all human decency.

If you voted for this man, I could not care less that you lose your health insurance. Or that you’re black and can’t get housing or a job. Or that you’re LGBTQ and can’t get housing or a job. Or that you’re a woman and can’t get an abortion, even though carrying the child to term would kill you. I don’t give a fuck. Because you are clearly okay with rape, racism, bigotry, the inciting of violence and hate-mongering in the highest office in our land. No, I will not “unite” with you. I will not “just get over it.” I will not respect this man. Ever. He is a disgusting, perverted, racist, rapist, misogynist, bigoted pig. And the only thing he deserves is the fucking grave.
